CHECKING IT TWICE: SOAP LEGENDS EDITION
As announced last week, this blog is expanding into the brave new world of enhanced digital books with the fan interactive Soap Opera 451: A Time Capsule of Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments.
What this means is that I need to compose a list of producers, writers, directors and actors to approach about naming the moment that they believe epitomizes soaps at the very top of their game.
Unfortunately, the first giants that pop to mind - Irna Phillips, Gloria Monty, Bill Bell - are dead.
That still leaves plenty of others, of course. Agnes Nixon, Claire Labine, Kim Zimmer, Susan Lucci, Linda Dano, Anthony Geary, Bill & Susan Seaforth Hayes, Eileen Fulton, Jeanne Cooper, Robin Strasser, Susan Flannery.... Are just a tiny fraction of who I was able to think of from the top of my head while composing this blog.
But, I want to hear from you! Who do you think absolutely deserves to be included in a book about Daytime Drama's Greatest Moments? Please tell me either in the Comments below, or by e-mailing AlinaAdams@gmail.com.
And keep those suggestions for Greatest Moments coming, too!
Here is one that I received that I was already able to find a video clip for:
From Mark: There is a (Another World) scene between Jamie and Mac that you can find on utube when they discussed their relationship separate from Rachel. That Jamie always thought of Mac as his father and Mac loves Jamie just as much as if he were his own son. This coming after a rift between them. It is simply one of the most heart wrenching moments. To this day I blubber when I watch it.
